Dry soils are encrusted with white salt in a thin or thick layer. The salts have come to the surface by capillary rise as well as deposit. Vegetation is sparse and salt tolerant. These soils occur most frequently in play as (intermittent lakes) but can be found on terraces, fans, and deltas. 5. Paleorthids Paleorthids are Orthids with a petrocalcic horizon that has its upper boundary within 1 meter of the soil surface. They have no duripan within this limit nor do they have a salic horizon within 75 cm of the surface if saturated with water within 1 meter of the surface for 1 month or more.
